The biggest highlight of this week was that Elder Alan Walker (of the 4th Quorum of the 70) came to visit our mission. Our mission president has been preparing for weeks, he made sure we all had haircuts, studied Preach My Gospel, and that we all arrived at least an hour early. These preparations made it even more special when he visited. He taught that we should invite all of our families to serve mission (adults and young ones alike). He also challenged us to be full-purpose missionaries and start teaching our investigators with the end in mind (the end being baptism, temple, and then the Celestial Kingdom).
There was a giant storm this week, and we figured out that when there's storms, the cockroaches come out. We saw a huge one out our window and so we went out to get a picture and they were Everywhere. All the walls, the floor, they were all covered with them. I was getting a picture and I felt something on my back, so I screamed and ran inside telling my companion to "get it off". Luckily, I was okay though. ;) I attached a picture of one of these big cockroaches, but it doesn't do it justice because you can't see the real size.
Also, I ate my first fried grasshopper this week. :) My companion filmed me on my camera, but it's too big of a file to send through email. They don't taste very good and the look on my face tells that. But I'm loving the new experiences!
I love you all! Remember to include God in all you do! He really is your father and loves you so much! Bye!
